Louis Saha could be in action for Everton as soon as the Manchester City match on December 13.

The striker injured a hamstring in the win at Tottenham last weekend, and it was feared he could face a long lay-off.

But scans have confirmed that he has only suffered limited damage to the hamstring, which is a boost for boss David Moyes.

Moyes has Ayegbeni Yakubu out for the season with an Achilles injury, while James Vaughan in is Colorado where he had a cartilage operation yesterday.

It is too early for Saha to face Aston Villa on Sunday, but if he responds to treatment next week, he has a good chance of playing at Eastlands.

Another Everton player who is the subject of a positive injury bulletin is Tony Hibbert, who has not been involved with the squad since the 1-1 draw with Middlesbrough last month.

He suffered a groin injury in training but his rehabilitation has gone to plan and he may be involved when Aston Villa visit on Sunday.
